Tuesday’s Spring Inquiry

Welcome back to school after the long weekend.

This morning we got straight into our SOUND and GRAMMAR focus:

Our sound study today was around the ‘ar’ sound

Joseph – “I know a word with sh and ar 2 of our sounds – shark”

Our GRAMMAR focus was around – Common Nouns

Can you remember what a proper noun is?

TIno: A place

Ajoh it needs a capital letter.

Rojun: A name.

Caroline: somewhere you live.

Khushi: Effiel Tower

Avleen: different countries.

Alyssa: Schools

Olivia: A town.

Alyssa: A city

India: Aerplane.

Monkia: the world.

Ajoh: Your habitats.

Meklet: it can a be a palce it needs a capital letter

Alphonsa: it could be a school name or your name

Van: If you have. A proper noun you need a capital

Suk: streets.

Ruby: Butterflies names.


We spoke and reflected that common nouns were things, common places or types of people, also making sure we knew the difference between Proper nouns, they need a capital letter, are the names of people, important places, like the street or an organisation such as our school.

It is a little tricky to remember the difference so maybe on your way home you can look for Common Nouns ( things) you can see outside the window and maybe you’ll even past some Proper Nouns, such as shopping centres and street names or even schools.

We did a hunt for common nouns around the room? Recording them all down seeing who could get the most.
